Adele Andrade-Stadler, the current vice mayor of Alhambra, will be sworn in as mayor during a City Hall ceremony on Monday night at 7 p.m. She will replace Jeff Maloney, the council member from the third district, whose nine-month term as mayor ends that day.

Unlike in other cities, where the mayor is directly elected, this title is rotated among Alhambra’s five city council members, who each serve in this position for a nine-month term.

Second District Councilman Ross Maza will be sworn in as vice mayor. Both Andrade-Stadler and Maza were elected to the council last November.

At 5:30 p.m., prior to the swearing-in ceremony, the City Council will hear an update on Alhambra’s strategic plan. The strategic plan involves city goals that the council set during a meeting last April. City staff is required to update the council about achieving those goals on a quarterly basis.

The city manager’s office will present a progress report on goals that include streamlining the permitting process; revitalizing East Main Street; adopting a bike plan and coming up with a plan to recruit police officers.

The consent agenda includes approval of Alhambra’s participation in the USDA Summer Food Service program; approval of a resolution to submit an Almansor Park planting project of 125 trees to the California Climate Investments Urban Greening Program; and approval of a tract map for a 125-unit town home development at 1428 South Marengo Ave. This is the current site of the Sunny View Care Center, a skilled nursing facility for seniors. In 2017, Sunny View owners applied to build condominiums and retail space on the site, attracting controversy over their plan to cut down more than 200 trees in the process.
